Anyone play a Jem with Duncans?

I have a stock 7VWH and love it for what it is and the Evos sound really cool. But, for almost everything I record I prefer the sound of Duncans. Either the JB or my new fav the great Custom Custom. Does anyone happen to play a Jem with a Custom Custom in the bridge? I love the looks of my 7VWH and don't want to mess it up with new pickups. I am thinking of selling one of my ESPs or Jacksons and getting the new blue jem and adding red duncans. I love the '59 in the neck but the single coil would stay as it. I appreciate any feedback. I may just say screw it and have someone swirl it also!

Ive got two rgs with duncans, and I love em both. IM not that picky about my pickups, I basically look at it like this. I like a hot one in the bridge and a nice blusey one in the neck and thats it. Also I always sound different than my buddies usin dimarzios, so I can stand out a little you know. GO for it and drop some white and gold duncans in your vwh. make yourself happy

I love Duncans. The way I see it, Duncans are just great quality, great sounding pickups, while DiMarzios are more specialised and tend to intrude (in a good way) on your sound.
